Jürgen Ellwanger 2020 Hebsacker Linnenbrunnen Spätburgunder Grand Cru dry

Jürgen Ellwanger 2020 Hebsacker Linnenbrunnen Spätburgunder Grand Cru dry

Regular price £42.40
"The name refers to a little house in the vineyard which has a water spring (Brunnen) under it. The little house (pictured in the main photo at the top of this article) happens to be an official registry office, so you can get married in the vineyard! Felix Ellwanger says that the vineyard always has water, even in the driest summer, and is surrounded by cherry trees (a good sign, I'm told, because cherry trees thrive where there is a lot of underground water).

Bit smoky, bacon-kip nose. The fruit takes a while to build through the oak, starting a little musty and musky but it gathers and then floods through. Red-apple skin, hawthorn berries. Elegant and shaped by focused (but not sharp) acidity."

Tasted by Tamlyn Currin,

"Marinated cherry, wet stone, crushed chalk and drying herbs. Highly structured with a powerful concentration nearly more Lemberger than Pinot."
